    I worked at New York Times full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Notable brand. Not a hostile workplace. Easy to be open about issues without fear of job loss. Lots of emerging technologies and desire to innovate. Management willing to invest.

    Cons

    Promotions are based on relationships and not merit. Jobs are not always posted for fair application. Senior people under utilized. People given roles that don't have the experience or training for the job. Roles filled based on social relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Get a fair promotion model in place. Unconscious bias still determines whose career progresses.

    Pros

    They treat their employees very well. They want their employees to be happy at work. There is an internal EAP.

    Cons

    With newspapers downsizing all the time, you're worried about losing your job. Although you're protected by the union if you work for the paper, the Company is not a union

    Pros

    Clearly a great brand, career advancing name recognition

    Cons

    sales management (particularly in the fashion & retail categories) seem completely out of touch with industry & digital trends. A sense that sales management team has only worked in print media for decades without any real digital experience. Few-to-no respected client or agency relationships relying on account management team to do very senior heavy lifting on their behalf. Mean-spirited and highly political environment that's driven by fear of significant ad revenue losses quarter-over-quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Look toward digital native, skilled and well-respected sales management leadership to motivate capable account management/ sales team but establish credibility in the ad marketplace.
